Italian Serie A Matchday 1: Preview

The Italian Serie A Matchday 1 kicks off this weekend and here’s our Argentinian season preview along with what will be a weekly preview of the players in action.

There’s a total of 28 Argentinians this season in the Serie A (we have yet to add Rodrigo PALACIO to our list in the Player Database section). Of course the number of Argentinians can still change with the transfer market not yet closing. Out of the 27, 14 of them have played for the senior Argentina National Team. Here’s the full list:

Only one match this weekend does not involve Argentinian players with the rest all having at least one Argentinian in the team squad. For last season’s champions Juventus, they open their campaign at home to Santiago COLOMBATTO’s Cagliari. The big match(es) of the weekend could be that of potential title contenders Inter (with Mauro ICARDI on the Argentina team) hosting the former River Plate boys German PEZZELLA and Giovanni SIMEONE of Fiorentina. The other big match would be that of Atalanta against AS Roma.

    Salvio scored a fantastic goal….

  3. Gonzalo

    Zenit with one more offer for Rigoni. Transfers of Brian Fernandez to Metz and Ascacibar to Stuttgart are near to be fact. Tottenham in advanced talks to sign another player of Estufiantes Juan Foyth.

    1. MMH

      Pocho should stay away from Argentine. (No offence Pablo lol)

  4. Gonzalo

    Golazo by A.Correa and Salvio. Nice one by Dybala.

  5. david carvajal

    None of the argentines are starting for sevilla.. sucks

    1. Gonzalo

      And none for Atletico. But 3 came as sub. Both Sevilla and Atletico started with 4 Argentines on the bench.

    2. MMH

      I was surprised he didn’t start with Banega.

  6. Gonzalo

    So many our central midfielders with new club, few to Europe: Enzo, Battaglia, Banega, Biglia, Kranevitter, Pizarro, Paredes, Poblete, Cecchini, Ascacibar (close Stuttgart), Rolon, Guido Rodriguez, Colombatto, Cubas, Arzura.

  7. Gonzalo


    actually Malaga have 2 Argentinos now. Two new young central midfielders. Emmanuel Cecchini and Esteban Rolon. The first from Banfield, the second from Argentinos. So it will be interesting.

  8. Gonzalo

    Also Leganes that is now playing against Alaves have more Argentinos. As much as 5: Munoz, Mantovani, Szymanowski, Dos Santos, Champagne.

    1. david carvajal

      Hey gonzalo, I couldnt watch the game.. did you see the game? I was hoping Munoz played well.. i see hr had a good rating on the app.. NT potential? Is he quick? Hard to find fast CB now a days

      1. Gonzalo

        I didn’t watched too but I’m going to watch Leganes in near future. Las Palmas as well.

        1. david carvajal

          Okay thanks.. on my app he showed as best defender… looking forward to checking him out on the pitch

      2. Gonzalo

        Looks like Munoz had excellent performance for Leganes yesterday.

  9. Gonzalo

    Colombatto is Perugia player now. And need add 2 much interesting new Genoa players that the list is lack: Centurion and Thomas Rodriguez.
